Happy birthday to my little one! I do love you so (:


How do two years go by so fast? My heart is gladdened and saddened at the very same time (:

Art show on Friday!

I am delighted to be participating in an outdoor art show this Friday!
It is Canada day, so I am hoping the turnout will be a good one, with families 'camping out' in the park and along the Port Perry waterfront, awaiting the evening firework show (:
I am busy busy printing out greeting cards and art prints, labeling and adding tags..Yay!
The whole week is going to be an exciting one truly, with this show on Friday, Jude's SECOND birthday on Tuesday and Isabella's last day of grade five on Wednesday (: Fun times!

It's a boy!

Jason and I just returned from my 20 week ultrasound and we have discovered that we are going to have another boy! Wow. I was so sure it was a girl, I don't know why..But I thought the same thing when I was pregnant with Jude.

His due date is 11-11-11

He smiled twice during the ultrasound! Here is one of those smiles (:

I love how you can see the spine. So awesome.

Baby feet!

So, I had all these totally awesome girl names picked out but not so many for-sure boy ones. I suppose I will be busy with this new task ~ picking out names is fun (: Any suggestions are most welcome!

Tea House!

In the little town of Ormsby we happened upon 'The Old Schoolhouse Tea Room'. Once a turn-of-the-century schoolhouse, the building showcases antique furniture, desks, teapots, school books and teacher materials. Entering into this place is like taking a step backwards in time. We thought it especially fun that your order is to be written on a chalkboard slate! If ever you find yourself in the Bancroft area, definitely pop in. It's absolutely lovely (:

swimming in the wild

While vacationing in Maple Leaf we found this gorgeous, remote spot to do a bit of swimming. The day was warm, the chomping bugs were minimal, and we were alone there nearly the entire time. Lovely lovely (: This was Jude's first real introduction to 'big water' as he doesn't remember his California days. He loved it. A free spirit (: Isabella has always been a genuine water spirit and she was so so happy to be in the water after our long winter! I love happening upon magical nature spots that are off the beaten path (:
